  • One event you and your group members identify as the starting point of World War II– justify your choice
  • The three most important events from the European (and North African) theater of the war
  • The three most important events from the Pacific theater of the war
  • One event you and your group members identify as the end of World War II — justify your choice
  • One major social consequence of the conflict
  • One major economic consequence of the conflict
  • One major political consequence of the conflict
  • One way in which you think World War II is DIFFERENT from World War I

Make sure your poster is accurate, neat, and colorful!
